Hi there!

Its time for me to upgrade my phone, i currently have a t-mob SDA 2. I have been looking into ppc's for a while now, as my old PALM is now knackered.

I want a phone that can do what my old PALM could do (Tungsten E) but still only carry one device around!!

I have been looking at both the C3 and Vario 2 and like them both.

My question is, which will do best what it want it do!?


I mainly used my PALM for the calendar and internet browsing, and games when i get the chance :)
Although i dont drive yet, i do like the idea of having GPS for when i do!

So could anyone point me to the right phone?

Thanks
Rob

The C3 can do all that but doesnt come with a hardware keyboard. The V2 has a slide out keyboard but has no built in GPS. All other features are the same as both run WM5.

I am considering getting one of those foldable bluetooth keyboards to compensate. Anyone have experience of them?

I don't have a Bluetooth foldable keyboard, I prefer to use one of THESE the video is a bit naf, but you should get an idea as to how it works. Takes a bit of getting used to, but after a while its certainly usable - Mike

Ok, thanks but, is one more reliable than the other, the keyboard is just an added bonus to me, i probably wouldn't even use it :)

I have noticed that the V2 has AKU 2.4 and C3 has AKU 3 is this a major difference?

which unit is lightest?
Which is prettiest (okok C3!!)
Which is most powerful?
^ My SDA 2 was pretty quick out of the box, but after about a month it started to slow down, now when i go to open most applications i have to wait at least a minute!! (not overclocked the processor yet tho!)

More like £90 at the moment with the exchange rate so good look for it in US $ then convert to UK - Mike
